BIGGEST LOSER: Twitter Users Taunt Trump After Tax Documents Show Huge Losses

President Donald Trump is dealing with the fallout of revelations in The New York Times that he suffered massive business losses in the 1980s and 1990s.

Ten years of tax data obtained by the newspaper revealed that Trump lost $1.17 billion, which appeared to be more than nearly any other U.S. individual. The Times said his $418 million in losses by 1991 represented 1% of all losses reported by individual taxpayers that year.

The news had many of the president’s critics suggesting that the host of the reality TV show “The Apprentice” might have been better suited for another broadcast. Specifically, “The Biggest Loser”:

The biggest loser!!!!

To which I would add a sixth takeaway:

Trump lost money in the LATE 80’s—a period of economic growth that’s about the last time you would have expected him to have operated in the red. If he wasn’t making money then, you seriously have to wonder when he ever turned a profit. https://t.co/LOD6MpUh7Z

The myth of @realDonaldTrump as a successful businessman is over. The truth? He’s the largest loser in the IRS system, and the spoiled inheritor of his daddy’s real estate empire. #TrumpTaxes https://t.co/DhgBJ3pq0K

Turns out, Trump was better suited for The Biggest Loser than his own reality TV show-to the tune of more than a billion dollars. https://t.co/BywMisHuK6

Donald Trump is a man born one foot from home plate who has spent his entire life walking back to third base and stepping on rakes the entire way.#TrumpTaxes

I saw focus groups of Trump voters in 2016. They thought the fact he was a hugely successful businessman would make him a successful president. The fact he was a loser in business will hurt him. And that is why he’s kept his taxes secret.

New York Times acquires 10 years of Trump tax info.

He was literally the biggest loser in the country!

Bigger reported business losses than any other human being in the country.

2. Yep, tried to keep Eastern airlines going

$500B purchase $10m a month it lost. But what about all the criminal Russian activity his taxes were going to show? Over and over again, I heard we need to see his taxes to expose all his Russian holdings and businesses.

10. According to the NYT, I am.

Looks like he is in debt. That could mean he has a negative net worth. I don't owe anybody anything. I'm not a billionaire, but I'm probably closer to it than Trump.

We now know this "self made billionaire" received at least $413 million in today's dollars from his parents. Then he blew all that and more. Way more.

I wonder who he owes all that money to. Maybe we will find out when House Democrats get the records they subpoenaed from Deutsche Bank and Capital One.

13. I rest my case, you know NOTHING about business

See? This is why Trump never did want his tax returns made public, because of EXACTLY people like you who are ignorant of business.

I'm guessing less than Trump.

11. I could own more things if I wanted to go head over heels in debt.

That wouldn't raise my net worth.

12. Do you understand how real estate works?

Do you know what a mortgage is? Or did you buy your home outright to avoid having any debt?
